Mariska Hargitay surprises New Yorkers ready to vote with candy treats
Democracy support is sweet – especially if you happen to come across Law and Order: SVU-Star Mariska Hargitay.
On Tuesday, October 27th, the actress surprised New Yorkers who were queuing to vote outside the polling station in Madison Square Garden. Mariska brought cookies from Milk Bar, the popular NYC candy store known for its unique flavors.
“We all know this election is incredibly important, which is why I wanted to show up to support my New York colleagues,” Mariska said in a statement. “The lines are long and people wait hours to do their civic duty. So I wanted to surprise some voters at MSG with a small pick-up service – it was the least I could do. I’m grateful that sports teams and venues did this opened their doors this year to allow so many Americans to have safe, socially distant, early voting. It is important that we all make our voices heard. “
